of the middle eastern studies program here at george mason. professor, how would you describe syria's economy as far as its structure? >> guest: syria's economy went through a number of changes. it went from a centralized state hood economy to a mixed economy that involved centralized aspects and some market aspects, but not in the manner that actually allowed the market to be efficient at all. >> host: when did this change occur from centralized to mixed? >> guest: most of the countries, the late developing countries, after the post colonial development, they had a period where they actually had to involve the masses in order to gain support and legitimacy. when this process, for a variety of reasons, began to create problems for the regimes and power and when external support and pressure for some of the regimes and for some of the directions that were available at the time in terms of moving towards the market economy around the 1980s took place, you saw a lot of these third world regimes or the global house begin to move from a state centered economy to a more market oriented economy, and

economy." here's the cover of the book. professor auerswald, what role does fairplay and economic development? >> guest: well, that's a great question and maybe i'll talk about what role does fear play in our conversation about development and our conversation presence? so when we talk about our reality and share our ideas in the marketplace, we are competing with other ideas. we know three things about marketplace ideas. short-term sells better than long-term. fear sells better than hope. negative sells better than positive that is to say exaggerated flows better than moderated. to receive disproportionate number of short-term narratives of negative, exaggerated stories essentially. so short-term on the negative come exaggerated. that's what's talked about any ideas. we are creatures who grew up in the savanna or environments where we were always subject to threat. so we're looking at that thing is going to hurt us, but we are no longer in those environments. we are in a complex economy, that really relies on organizations to provide basic necessities. so we have to update our th
information technology world is going to be driving our entire economy in ways we can't understand now. ewe can tell from doug's niche titch what they look at is going to be significant for all industry. privacy is one part of it, but given the active nature of the current administration, that's just a perfectly ripe area for a tremendous amount of litigation and regulation to break out. i want to make sure i understand it, and i hope you guys will take general up on his invitation to participate in that effort because initiatives coming from the national ag's association can be very, very significant as you all know. >> well, as you all can see, no longer just the down ballot state office holder slot. these ag's are making an impact across the country on a number of issues, and i hope you will stay focused on what they are doing and provide them your input. thank you so much. give them a round of applause.

or simply his view is what is best for the economy, but it's a very similar proposal in my estimation and i wish that we could move ahead with them being like this then you would be tremendous benefit icing for the taxpayers to get some usefulness out of this investment that they have made in the gses and keeping them together and functioning, to use the skeleton, to use the infrastructure and awaited that allows the taxpayer to get a benefit, to get some monetization of the investment that is then made over time. .. >> i have made my decision to leave freddie mac because i thought it was going to take a long time before we would get resolution. unfortunately, i joined the company the middle of 2009. at that point, everyone was certain that the company would be relaunched at some point. possibly in a couple of years. obviously, we have been disappointed in that. as the calendar rolled through three or four years, i concluded looking at my birth certificate that i probably wasn't going to make it. that was one indication of my pessimism about when we were going to get this resolved. it was c
to stimulate the economy is hire more teachers. well, the answer to that is, of course they would say that, they are teachers. i think the best thing to stimulate the economy is to hire more conservative journalist. [laughter] >> i think it is just self-evident that that would work. [laughter] >> that is logic to consider that it rejects other forms of federal spending. there is also a form of keynesianism that sweeps into conservative economic thinking once you get into defense spending. they begin to talk about the loss of jobs at the close on a military base and the multipliers that we have is the hairdresser who, you know, is cutting the true terror won't have a job that point. that may come on some level be true. i could be argued with every program. with other programs we look in terms of how that money could otherwise be spent and who might otherwise be employed and what other economic opportunities are lost as a result of the government spending. but when it is defense spending, conservatives have a bit of a blind spot with that. the purpose of national defense is defending the nat

better if we intend to compete in the global economy. last year, i traveled to china, and i visited several universities. the gnarl investment -- national investment in these universities, research facilities, and higher education is something to behold. over the last 30 years, china has had a 58-fold increase in spending in education, health, and social investments. according to o report from the center for american progress, by 2030, china will have more than 200 million college graduates, more than the entire u.s. work force. in five years, india will be producing five times as many college graduates as the united states. these are the facts that drive the decisions we must make as we position penn state to succeed in the future. part of that strategic planning requires getting out and staying out in front of the information technology revolution, which has been among the most significant drivers of educational change in the last 15-20 years. it's also been like a run away train. one response to the higher education funding crisis has been increased appeals, especially from legis

had and the clinton administration, those upper income earners were doing well and the entire economy was growing. we are going to have to make some tough choices. a balanced approach is the only approach that i believe will get us there. >> heather, your rebuttal. >> it is amazing to me, congressman, that you can stand here having voted for trillion dollar deficits for the last four years. the largest, fastest debt increase in american history and say that we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending of the last four years, and with respect to cuts, cap, and balance it is amazing to me also that the idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stop funding things like solyndra and prioritize things like social security, medicare, and education, and that is why i support a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. >> the race to succeed retiring new mexico senator is just one of the key house, said, and governors r
of the entrepreneurs in this room who are the talent pool for the next economy in detroit are thinking how do i get a job with the city. so -- >> no career advice. >> no, but i mean, seriously. the young talent pool, the 20-somethings and 30-somethings are not thinking about the public sector as a career path. so let's just be blunt and honest. the city is not going to be able to harness the talent that's there that will get the city to the next place. so invert the question. not how are we going to hire those people, but how are we going to bring them into the process sitting where they are in universities, in the private sector, in the ngos that are dynamic and interested in the city of the future, and the city has to invent the way to do that. collaborate, create communities of interest, harness that talent pool, um, and give them the resources where it's necessary if the resources are there. now, there's not a lot of city resource, but the city has the legitimization capacity to say you are now the agent of change. it used to be the department of x, and the department of x is now really incapab
and deter waste, fraud, and abuse, and improve the economy and efficiency of the agency. but our role was also to promote transparency and what the agency did, because i believe very strong and we believe are strongly that it was important for the citizens in the at the government was doing. that's the point in the law enforcement context, but in the intelligence area as well. we did reduce intelligence matters ranging from review of the robert hanssen case at the fbi, why wasn't the robert hanssen could be a spy and fbi missed for several decades, when it initially came out, the fbi said it was because of his wily tradecraft picking out to exploit the system and we are asked to look at it determined that that was not true. that they had lax internal security methods and that he it needed improvement. not only did we do that report but we also made public the findings of the report. a lot of people said how can you do that? this is a very sensitive area. it's top secret area, we push very hard to make an executive summary of the conclusions of that report now because we believe strong
of society along with rule of law, along with a stable economy, along with writing business. >> i have an answer that is probably quite controversial and it doesn't have to do with the military%, but it has to do with the policy on how the u.s. controls the development of medical devices and drugs. it has become so problematic that a fireman and medical technology developers are now going to other countries to do the clinical trials in the work necessary to prove that their devices work successfully in human. this is a very backwards way of promoting national security in the context of preventing people from disease and injury through advanced technology. budget is important i think that if our industry and the health sector is turning to other countries that we maintain strong relationships with those countries and make sure there's a handshake there between our medical professionals and their medical professionals, that were not just experimenting on their populations. i think that is an important unintended consequence of our current policy. >> if i could pile on to your question. i
believe that the tax cuts for the wealthy stimulate the economy? dold: i believe keeping tax rates low are going to be helpful. president obama said in 2010 said in a fragile economy, we should not be raising rates. that's when the economy was growing at 3.5%. the economy today is growing at 1 minute 5%. i asked my opponent how raising taxes was going to help more people get employed, how it was going to help these small businesses who are struggling to make ends meet. frankly, there was no response. >> moderator: do you believe tax cuts for the wealthy stimulate the economy? schneider: i stand with the president that we should keep tax rates for all earners under 250,000 where they are. but we have a fiscal imbalance. we need to address that. by raising the tax rates, going back to the tax rates of the 1990s where we had a growing economy, we were creating 23 million jobs. the congressional budget office looked at the plan to go back to 1990 rates on income over $250,000, they said it would reduce our net debt over ten years by almost a trillion dollars. that's a significant step in b

designates 36 bank holding companies as liable to create the instability in the u.s. economy if they fail. in addition, it goes on to permit the financial stability oversight council. it designates an unknown number of additional nonbank institutions that could create instability in the u.s. economy. now what does it mean when congress gives this authority or designates this notion in the statute? what it says is these institutions are too big to fail. so not only are we worried about the too big to fail but we have made the problem worse by actually embedded in the statute for these banking institutions and promoting the fsoc to designate certain institutions and we understand just from reading the newspapers that they have for the large insurance companies and in one case a finance company to be designated as too big to fail. what does it mean? what effect does that have? on the creditors will get these institutions and much safer investments than others. first of all once they are so designated they are supposed to be regulated stringently by the fed to really don't know what stringent
upstate medical center blues $18 million a year. it's going to hurt the economy. so i voted to repeal the affordable care act. beyond that we voted for bipartisan support for three free trade agreements that will aid in increasing the number of exports from our district. >> we have time for rebuttal. what are your thoughts regarding the stimulus act? maffei: i think the recovery act was essential at the time. first of all we're lots of small tax cuts that were essential to those families. secondly, we kept police on the street, kept or teachers to me laid off in our classrooms from blowing up in size. and firefighters. so certainly we had to do something. the thing that i am really confused about, that's bad but there do the right thing on the taxes apparently. but now some of the economy is starting to be fine for millionaires and billionaires. i'm doing the wrong thing by asking them to pay their share. and get we need to balance the budget but where is the money going to come from? none of it adds up. >> moderator: urso, your reaction. rozum: i think would be immoral to r
a harder time adapting to the economy and women are adapting more easily. there are periods when men have adapted easily but at this period, education and credentials. economy is fast-changing and who knows what it will throw at us? women are getting those killed and credentials that a faster rate than men are and seem to be more nimble and that filters into our society. in the book i talk about how that changes marriage and notions of fatherhood and what men can or cannot do in families or how young people have sex and make decisions and you start to see it having an influence in our culture basically. >> host: we have heard there's a crisis with girls, they learn their not strong in math and science and bears emphasis on trying to prove that and it will come as a shock that women far outstripped men in academic performance. >> guest: i have a daughter and two sons. it you occasion is the clearest argument. girls do better than boys and now they have equal as 80 scores in math and do better in verbal scores. it starts early in life and that is largely a development question. we demand a
do will recover. how that affect the ability of policy to control the economy and the ability or the impact of various changes in fiscal policy. on our fiscal cliff issues come i would say more like the distraction from the fiscal chaos will see after the election around these issues. what i would worry about is not so much the direct impact on ice, much more the stock markets, much more how it will affect other countries. to take europeans and throw an interest in risk premium globally as everyone got scared in the running running into u.s. treasuries paradoxically because we stabilize expectations of the u.s. fiscal policy. what's that going to do to spread entrance or italy or spain? it's only going to go down. so our ability to damage the world is very important. i still worry how they come back to us through the financial system and how the impacts is more affect this. i don't think anybody here is evil. they're just doing their job.

, and the minute that the story started, in "the new york times" and the "washington post" that iran and economy is indeed in great trouble, the goal posts tend to shift a little bit. matters no longer by getting them back to the table are getting a deal, but now more and more open question marks were raised about can this actually lead to regime change, cannot have it for a couple more months to see what else we can get. as that happens, the interest of the suffering party then decreases to engage indigo should as well because the negotiations can become a negotiation for the terms -- and instead they tend to define their search for the next game changer. something that will once again be able to turn the table and find an exit way from the very situation there and what now but look what happened after the talks collapsed in 2010 and 2009 if the iranians started and enrichment at the 20 some of the there were question marks, significant question marks whether the iranians were succeeding in doing this but they managed to do it. the western imposes sanctions on iran hoping that would change the
economies combined come if you follow the money, which you are taught to do in business, the path leads you. third, focus on a domestic capability rather than safely delivering a sale. in the case of this, the value proposition was not about selling the best locomotive. it was all about helping saudi arabia develop its domestic rail infrastructure and matured through training and education and managing that rail system through the creation of a career in transportation. think about growing saudi arabia and talent and not hiring saudi arabians. many are aggressive in seeking out saudi arabian students for some programs. now, as they graduate, we will bring them on for training within the company. with the intent of starting them out in entry-level managers and engineers in the kingdom. they are starting a career. not just being hired on for a job. they did all this. they beat the competition. they won. other american companies are making a significant impact. not just on their businesses, but also on the future of saudi arabia. exxon mobil has a long tradition in the kingdom. among their suc
disastrous effects on the iranian economy and in large part, this is due to the rainy government's own mismanagement and dysfunction, specifically the ahmadinejad administration handling of the economy. the sanctions have abetted the economic situation or exacerbated it. all the currency has appreciated by 90% in the last year. middle income iranians are hurting. it's hard to put food on the table. entire countries really suffering because of sanctions for most of the the policies and mismanagement. sanctions have raised the cost on iran's nuke you pursue. we often talk about the sanctions haven't been successful, that we haven't seen any signs that iran is to win back the nuclear program. i would argue not yet perhaps, the sanctions have raised the cost of iran's nuclear weaponization if he chooses to go in that direction. ayatollah harmony has dismissed sanctions, but he says sanctions are brutal and so the regime is under a lot of pressure. we saw in recent weeks iranians come out to the street to protest against the regime. it wasn't just the action against ahmadinejad specifically
requirement. it's already done. and so there's still, there's people -- now, when the economy changes, could it impact us? yes. but right now i feel it has not impacted our recruiting, it has not impacted our quality, operationally it has not impacted us and, hopefully, that will continue. >> general, you've been in the job for a little over a year now. god willing and things go right, you've got three more years to go. i know that much of the decade before you took this job you were not in the middle of the night waking up and saying, okay, what would i do if i were the chief because you had other things on your mind. [laughter] what has surprised you the most in terms of coming in in this circumstance? >> well, i think one of the things, i guess i've got to be careful. i was the commander in iraq and the commander of the corps there. i had the freedom to make some pretty significant decisions -- [laughter] that freedom is not quite the same here in washington. [laughter] so, you know, that's probably one of the biggest adjustments. i had to realize that i didn't have complete autonomy, but
sorts. i think it is pretty good on this we want to talk about effects on the economy and bringing manufacturing back i thought before we got to the macro, we can talk about the macro and micro effect in this kind of technology. >> all right. so when you have an idea and you printed out when you hold in your hand, you tweet about it and we think this is great. the good news is that i actually went back in 1977 i probably should have been even more fit to go to 1984. in 1985, the first laser printer from apple as well. we forget how mind blowing that was. publishing used to be something that you needed. now you can put it on your desktop. you can point and click and it has become high-quality professional staff. that is super exciting, but only a few of them. those printers spoke a language called postscript. it was the same language spoken by the biggest printers in the world. you can upload it to a printer and you really could publish it. that was kind of exciting. and then we did the same thing with the web. you can distribute as well. now we are doing the same thing with physica
but every state has grown. and over the last couple of years as the economy has started to rebound a little bit, very slowly, especially with long-term unemployment remaining very high, we've also seen the growth in snap begin to level off. so come and then again this week of course i think it's important to think about the ability of the programs that respond not just economic conditions but also to disasters. there's a feature the the program that enables snap to be one of the first programs that is on the ground offering help to people and grocery stores doctor reopen, and very temporary help of only a month or two. so that's really important. participation rates among those who are eligible are very high. the most recent estimates for 2009 but we have no reason to think it come down since then, and in 2000 the department of agriculture found 72% of all individuals who are eligible participated in snap. almost 90% of the benefits for which people qualified were actually paid to these eligible people, or provided helpful people on their ebt card, meaning that the people are most likely to
are the ones falling out of stability and prosperity not because the economy changed for the jobs went away but because they are their own feelings and if you think that this kind of a fringe thing or he's a scholar, so that book was a best seller just like all of his books because the right by his books and we don't, so i'm not talking a lot in the one in particular but liberals need to buy more books. it's not a fringe sentiment because i started hearing echoes on the primary trail. you had rick santorum come out and say the problem was dependency, when the family falls apart the economy falls apart and rather than the other way around, that it's harder to have stable families when the economy is falling apart. you had new gingrich call barack obama the food stamp president and those of us that heard a dog whistle or racial coding weaver absolutely right but new gingrich was also right when he said i'm not talking about black people, will get all the white people, the percentage of white people is also skyrocketing again. we have independent country. paul ryan was talking about the makers
of the factories you going to have a collapsing economy that will drag it right back into instability. this is going to be a very difficult trade off. with regard to the country splitting up, lebanonization, i would hope that would not happen. if there is a kurdish group in the north that wants to separate out, i can pretty much assure you that turks would not be welcoming of that concept. so that might cause some difficulties. there may be some warlord for a while, the brutality of assad kept things in check for a long time. what would israel gain from a conflict? as far as i can see, it's losing on all sides on this one. it's in a very insecure area. much more than at any time in its history. >> that the organization if you of this region is something which -- from is a lot of people see different patterns. for example, with iraq breakup to a sunni stand, as she is down? and yet you think about iraq being arabic, not sunni but it's hard to see the kurds have a lot of ambition and the absence of power, the absence of the state encourages kurdish ambitions both in iraq as we see when
was at the time in his and other economies was coming, was not crystal-clear as it is today. and partly because secretary and the president kept getting dragged akin to other issues. you asked about the presence the. he thought the issue was important. he realized the importance of trade and so on. the first couple years of his initiation of clinton focus on the domestic economy which by the what was the most single important thing you can do for your foreign policy, above all today. so, and christopher spent a lot of time in asia and went out, secretary christopher, to the region, but he often would get subsumed in the bosnia crisis. we have somalia and haiti and other crises in the middle east. and so although we raise the profile, i don't think we were able to succeed, certainly as kurt campbell has succeeded, i have great admiration. i would make one final comment on the china roller coaster because we all had this experience. it affected me personally. in 93, without getting into details, we don't have the time, undergo she with leaders of the house and the senate a deal to link -- [inaudi
